Muffin Corn Dogs

Here is another fun, easy, summer dinner that your whole family will love!! Thanks to Lick the Bowl Good.(My hubby loved them more than my kids:) A lighter version of a fair favorite that will become a fun meal, snack or party food!!

With the works!! Add kethcup, mustard, and relish and you will be in heaven! My best advise, top them with your favorites and pick them up and dig in. Using a fork can get a little crumbly and messy :)

The inside, cute huh?


1 corn muffin mix (I used Marie Callendar's)
1 package of turkey dogs
anything you put on your hot dogs

1. Ok, really easy here! Preheat your oven to the right temperature. Whip up your muffins. When making your muffins make them low fat! If it asks for eggs: sub egg whites (2 whites for every 1 egg) milk: fat free, oil or butter: sub applesauce. Easy peasy. Ok after you have made your mix, cut your hot dogs into 3rds. That is what fits for a 12 muffin standard baking sheet.
2. Spray your tins REALLY GOOD with non-stick and fill about 2/3 full. Some of mine kinda stuck so spray them well. Stuff a little dog in there and kinda bury him in batter. The muffin will cook over it. Bake for the right time depending on what mix you get.
3. After they are done baking give them a few minutes to cool. I think that helps with the whole not sticking and crumbling apart mess of a dinner. Using a knife go around all the edges of the muffins and use a fork to pry them out. Be careful too. *Maybe it is just me, but I like my food to be pretty so I made my brother eat the broken ones before dinner started so no one would see that they we less than perfection :)
4. Ok. top them and eat! YUM!! Serve these babies with watermelon or fruit salad and a veggie like carrots and celery sticks or steamed green beans.

*To steam green beans buy fresh from the store or pick from your garden :) and place in a sauce pan that has a metal steaming basket and a couple inches of water. Bring to a boil and steam for about 10 minutes. Taste test and when just soft take off heat. Place in a dish and serve with a little tub butter, salt and pepper.


  1. oooo I do enjoy a good corndog! Can't wait to try these. I wonder how muffin liners would work...to get them out of the pan without sticking. I think I'll try that. Thanks.

  2. I'm also thinking how it would work to chop the dog into little bits and mix into the batter...easier for kids (no choking) and more dog/muffin in each bite?
